Brace yourselves, Spice Girls fans: The 90s girl group may never be in full force ever again. As excitement of a possible 20th anniversary tour ensued, a new report says that Victoria Beckham, a.k.a. Posh Spice, is officially out. Get the details here.
Say it isn’t so! Just when we thought the original Spice Girls might reunite for their first tour in eight years, it looks like we need to let that dream die. While Mel B., Geri Halliwell, Mel C., and Emma Bunton have geared up for an anniversary tour, Victoria Beckham‘s participation has always been questionable. Despite such a monumental occasion for the British girl group, apparently Posh Spice wants nothing to do with it!
“[Victoria] has been very respectful about the fabulous time they had together in the past,” Victoria’s rep tells TMZ. “However, her focus is now very much her family and fashion business.”
Posh’s rep was apparently very stern in declaring that she won’t be joining the girls for not just this year’s anniversary, but also never in the future either. As much as fans don’t want to believe it,it sounds like the Spice Girls will forever be a foursome. So will they still carry on without Victoria?
Unfortunately, it seems the 20th anniversary tour was an all-or-nothing situation. After Mel B. was the one to initially tease some secret reunion plans, a close source to Mel C. emphasized to The Sun that Victoria had to be part of it in order for it to be extra special. And as 2015 came to a close, Mel B. seemed totally sure that they could get Posh on board. We can only imagine how crushed they must be!
Although Victoria seems to be pretty set in her ways, maybe she’ll come around. Considering the year has just begun, there’s plenty of time for fans and her former bandmates to campaign for her return. C’mon, Victoria, give us what we all want — what we really, really want!
